Work Environment 

LONG strives to create a working culture and environment that inspires our employees every day. We have made a focus on providing comfortable and efficient workspaces that boost collaboration and creativity. Standing desks allow for better blood circulation, better posture, and more alertness while still providing you the option to sit.

Work-life Balance

The leadership team at LONG encourage their teams to maintain a comfortable work-life balance. In order to create this, we provide a range of professional tools that accommodate flexible working. We also encourage employees to take advantage of their Vacation & Sick time when they need it, and disconnect from email and phone calls at the end of the day and on weekends. We want our employees to truly feel they are valued, and part of that is being able to rest adequately and take time away from work.

Wellness 

LONG has made a big push since 2013 to focus on our employees’ wellness. We have a Wellness Committee that meets once a month to discuss various events (Biometric Screenings, 5ks for charities, volleyball teams, softball teams, kickball teams, etc.), wellness initiatives around nutrition and fitness, company challenges, and various spiffs that provide our employees with discounts on gym memberships, fitness trackers, etc.

Benefits

LONG offers competitive benefits to include: medical, dental, vision, long-term disability, term life insurance, accident and critical care coverage, 401k options, and a profit share program.

Rewards Programs

All individual contributors are eligible for this program to be nominated by their managers for displaying excellent work ethic, commitment to the company, and generally going above and beyond.  A gift card and pen are presented to the winners.

This program promotes employees to recognize their fellow coworker through the presentation of a LONG gold coin. Employees can use this program to publicly and officially thank their peers for a job well done!

As LONG has grown, this program has expanded to include multiple employees – Leader of the Year, Salesperson of the Year, Contracting Employee of the Year, etc.  A travel voucher for the following year is on the line!  The employees who have shown exemplary performance and contribution to the company over the past year are considered Employee of the Year candidates and competition is steep!  We have great people!

Once employees become LONGBoarders, they tend to stay!  LONG likes to recognize employees at 5-year intervals for their commitment to the company and there are gifts associated with each interval.  These awards are presented at the holiday part at the end of the year.

Your Passion, Your Career

Engineering

Our engineers at LONG specialize in mechanical, electrical, systems, and applications. We offer:

  • Internships and full-time work programs
  • Market-oriented product design and innovation led by the best of the best. Whether it’s on the mechanical side or the building automation side, we have opportunities to suit many desires and interests

Project Managment

LONG is comprised of four business units – Building Environments, Building Intelligence, Mechanical Solutions, and Security Solutions. Each unit operates a little differently, but most of them have needs for skilled project managers who can manage both material and people from start of a job to finish.

Technicians

Our technicians work within building automation, mechanical solutions and security solutions to provide top-notch customer service, troubleshooting and repair services. Our technicians get hands on training with experienced technicians before they are allowed to work on their own so we can ensure the quality of their work and their overall knowledge of the systems they are working with.

Sales

Our sales teams are diverse and complex. We have sales representatives under every business unit within LONG, but they are all working toward the same goals – to help grow the business and be better than they were the day before. Sales positions we offer include but are not limited to:

  • Sales Engineers for Equipment Sales (Equipment sales)
  • Sales Engineers for Building Automation (New and existing building automation)
  • Sales Engineers for Security Solutions (Security, Access Controls & Surveillance)
  • Sales Engineers for Mechanical Solutions (Service Sales)

Warehouse

Within our warehouses, we have positions from Material Handlers, Warehouse Assistants, Warehouse Supervisors to Warehouse Managers. Our warehouse staff are extremely driven, positive, happy to help wherever the can, and always interested in seeking out new challenges and growth opportunities.

Administrative & Support

Our Administrative & Support staff includes Administrative Assistants, Office Managers, our Accounting department and our HR department. These teams all provide invaluable services, knowledge and resources to the entire company. Some of the positions you can find within these departments include:

  • Administrative Assistants
  • Office Managers
  • HR Generalists
  • Corporate Recruiters
  • Director of HR
  • Payroll Specialists/AP Specialists/AR Specialists
  • Accountants
  • Accounting Manager
  • Controller

Training & Apprenticeship Programs

LONG has partnered with IEC (Independent Electrical Contractors) to provide an Apprenticeship Program for electricians. LONG covers the cost of schooling and provides the required amount of working hours under a licensed Journeyman for an Apprentice to be able to complete their Apprenticeship Program and test to become a Journeyman Electrician.

LONG encourages and supports employees furthering their education and contribution to the company.  Rather than a reimbursement program that asks employees to pay for their education up front and wait until the end of the semester to be reimbursed, LONG offers a scholarship program that pays schools directly and up front prior to the start of the semester.  This program offers up to $10,000 per year toward an applicable degree.

Our industry is ever-changing and technology keeps us on our toes!  LONG is a proponent of training and each individual business unit has multiple training opportunities available depending on position.  Safety training, corporate/ethics training, and other topics are also companywide initiatives that set employees up for success in their day-to-day.
